I am Marine, professional photographer since 2002, mother of 2 beautiful children, based in Paris, France. What moves me? Love, of course! I'm addicted to emotions, I like the laughter, the tears of joy, and the impression they leave in our hearts. I love family albums, how they trace our history and define us. That is why I really think it's important to keep beautiful images of the highlights of our lives. After studying philosophy and acquiring a degree in visual arts, I became, in 2002, an assistant to Marc Riboud (former president of Magnum Photos). At the same time I produced my first photojournalistic assignments, interested in relations between individuals, family and living areas. Until 2007, I created photojournalistic assignments, working with French press and performed in parallel event-reports, and private (portraits, weddings, etc. ...). In 2007, I became a mother for the first time and found it difficult to balance work and motherhood. Ernestine et sa famille is a life plan to adapt my professional life to my family life in harmony with my values. Today, I propose my photojournalistic expertise for your corporate and private events. Taking the time to know you, to really understand who you are, and your relationships with those you love, that's the secret of my work and gives it meaning. I produce wedding and life photo-reportage. I have a candid and documentary approach. No matter if it's your wedding day or a day in your family life, the way i work is the same, i document your day, capturing the story of your day, and putting human being at the center of my attention. I tell a story, your story. REAL LIFE IS SO MORE INTERESTING! I tell a story, your story.
I find my inspiration in both social documentary and fashion shoots. As a family photographer, my goal is to capture decisive moments of the day. Photography entered in my life when I was 15 and never quit me. It is important for me to treat each client as unique. I live in France and love to travel all around the world to learn about other cultures and different ways of life. These experiences nourish my own work.
I photograph your family, as a reporter could do to capture real moments, your emotions, and, for the challenge of making artistic and authentic photos. I photograph you in your daily life, at the events that count for you, the baptisms of your children, their birthdays and of course, during your wedding. I'll be present at your side, discreetly, during these important moments, to immortalize your family life and document your family history.
Tired of posed lifestyle, Insta-perfect images that crowd social media today, Faith strives to capture real, authentic everyday moments that you'd want to keep forever. The goal is to have beautiful images that document your life right now, photos that you will treasure over the years, that tell your family story. "Growing up, my grandfather always had a video camera in hand. He recorded everything- weekday dinners, birthday parties, trips to the mall, playing the piano, performances, from every day to big moments, he's documented them all. However, this is something that he began when he first had kids, photographing his wife and children in the various homes and countries they lived in. Half his lifetime later, I get a glimpse into his life before I was born and into moments I don't remember." It's from this deep appreciation that Faith has for her grandfather's life-long effort that drives her to create the same for you. The challenge is that because we live it, we don't see the beauty in our own every day. And sometimes it just requires the decision to invite an extra pair of eyes into your home and you'll have tangible memories to show to the next generation.
I discovered photography as a little girl. It has always been a part of our life to be taken in pictures and create memories that last forever. When I was 18, my parents offered my 1st camera of my own. I tried to use it the best I could but didn't really take the time to go further. In 2009, I started to work at Sony, in marketing and discovered the world of photographers that reminded me how much I loved it. I started to ask a lot of questions and got interested into the technology & techniques. In 2013, I have decided to quit everything and leave for a round the World trip. 2 years on my own, with my backpack and a camera, to encounter as many people as possible and take pictures to see if I really like it as a job. And guess what? When I came back, I have decided to take the leap and I founded my company in 2016. I immediately started to shoot families with an approach to document real life, the everyday moments, and completely fell in love with it. Now you know me a little bit more: I'm a travel addict, who loves taking photos and telling beautiful stories of life through my pictures. I want to meet you, to discover you and to capture everything you feel with my camera. I’m completely addicted to smiles, happiness, close-knit families, crazy couples and people who want to enjoy life. For now, I am based in Paris but I travel everywhere for my work, in France but also Worldwide. Take me for my next adventure with you, with a great sound of your favorite music in the ears.
Photography and people are Joshua’s two greatest passions. Utterly curious – a nice legacy she got from her grandmother – she loves to meet new people, observe them and capture what they are all about. She is both outgoing and calm so to make everyone feel at ease. Very patient, she has a special radar for shenanigans. Her goal is to document small but great moments that might otherwise go unnoticed, to capture the moment just as it felt that day. She is a visual storyteller. Mostly self-taught, she has been a professional photographer for the last 11 years, full time since 2013. She is based in Antwerp, Belgium, and travels in (and sometimes out) Europe for Family, Day in the Life sessions and Weddings. She is at her best when shooting true, unstaged and profound moments and events – in a relaxed atmosphere.
My approach to family and wedding photography is that of a documentary. I do not intervene, or really little, and I prefer the capture of candid images. My main goal is to tell your story and to transcribe in images what moves me in your real life. With this in mind, I am particularly attentive to MOMENTS. I want to leave you something about the beauty of your family ties, and I like to document with sincere and authentic photographs, the life of the families who entrust me with this beautiful mission.
I choose to photograph and document Life! True moments, emotions, connections, the love and the essence of your family is what I love to capture in real-life. I feel very privileged to "tell the story" of memorable and precious moments of your life, capturing all the authenticity of your environment. I particularly love documenting birth stories. Witness and honor the sacred experience of womanhood is something that heartily interests me.
My personal photographic heritage is quite poor and I often regret it, all those moments that I let fall through time ... In the continuity of my work for the couples in the wedding universe, I like to capture the moments of life, the real life. This motivates my professional goals, follow you on a chosen moment in order to propose images that will allow you to constitute a precious family patrimony. Your family is beautiful, see you soon.
I work without filters and without effects. I have my favorite tools, the technique is not a problem. I work in natural light, and I adapt to all situations. Every photo I give you has been carefully selected and embellished by me. I like to take the time to reveal the spirit of each, I like the fresh colors and without makeup, I want your photos to go through the years without becoming obsolete. What touches me most is seeing people who love each other. And it is the daily gestures that transmit love, much better, and much more often than words ... These movements, these looks, these moments are an inexhaustible source of energy for your family. Today, while everyone "poses" in front of the lens (tiny) of his phone, I suggest you discover the joys of the natural photo and not asked! It's simple, choose a photographer that you like and with whom you feel comfortable (you're there, and that's good too!). Book a time together (a morning, an afternoon, an evening ... 3h is good to take the time to forget). And then ... LIVE!
I am a photographer of family and marriage in Abbeville, in the Somme, in Hauts de France. The distance does not scare me, I am ready to move everywhere in France and even everywhere in the world if you wish. I am Japanese, mother of two children. My childhood was shared between France and Japan and I rubbed French even being in Japan, China, or the United States. I met my dear French husband in Tokyo. I speak perfect French and Japanese and also English (I lived 5 years in the United States, Texas) and a little Chinese. I was often called Little Nao hence the name "Little Nao Photography". I like to immortalize the emotions, the moments on the spot, without artifice, without posing. Discreetly or by interacting with my subjects, I observe and I always stand ready to capture the decisive moments. What I'm trying to photograph is the extraordinary in the ordinary. Whether at a special event or a day like any other, I like to find beauty in banalities. My goal is to tell a story, to allow you to relive the moment through my photographs.
I have been a photographer since 2014. Before that, I was in charge of HR in big corporate business; photography at first was a way to let out some steam, it was a very demanding job requiring a lot of letting go. One day I got fed up with my job, decided to devote my time to my passion and started retraining. Today, I can reconnect with what I liked in my HR job, help people write their own stories and memories. I need it, it’s my fuel. Family photography is my media to tell a story and render what I learned about people. It helps me keep faith in humanity and in feelings we too often try to hide. I also do a lot of corporate photography along with personal projects.
I'm a lifestyle photographer since 2015 in France, around Lyon. In love with the arts and above all with manual work, I immediately knew that I wanted to be an artist. Every year I do two or three different workshops with some very nice photographers. Learning to go beyond myself and finding my style is important to me, I need that. I realize every day that passes the happiness that I have to do this exceptional job. A chance to work with you, to let my curiosity wander through your stories. It is often said that curiosity is a bad thing, it is for me the opportunity to know you better to create images that look like you. I do this job out of passion and because I do not see myself doing anything else.
